Because of his ordinary looks, he is approached by a pair of sinister people named Smith and Jones. Pretending to be cops, Smith and Jones kidnap Lynn and confront Gene with a simple choice — kill California governor Eleanor Grant in 90 minutes or less, or Lynn will die. Watson is given a gun, six bullets, and a name tag, and he is told to go to the Westin Bonaventure Hotel and kill Eleanor, who is giving an afternoon speech. While Jones is watching Lynn in a van, Smith watches Watson in order to prevent Watson from alerting the authorities. Watson must quickly find some way to get himself and Lynn out of this seemingly impossible situation.
Plot: An unimpressive, every-day man is forced into a situation where he is told to kill a politician to save his kidnapped daughter.

Clever little thriller
A clever idea – an thriller played along real time to involve the viewer directly in the tension and pressure of the deadlines. Depp is forced to kill a senator or his daughter will be killed by Walken and Maffia. He is given a gun and a time limit to carry it out.
As the basis for a thriller it doesn’t quite work – the real time concept falls apart a few times, but with this much talent on board it still holds it own. A throwback to the Hitchcock everyman thrillers of years ago, Depp plays his character well and you always believe he is just an ordinary man in an unbelievable situation rather than an action hero in the making while Walken does what he does best and plays the villain well.
The plot holds together well and you really find stuff out at the same time as Depp does. Some of the conspiracy stuff towards the end of the film is obvious and doesn’t add anything to the film, but the main story revolving around Depp and Walken is tense enough to carry the film.
It doesn’t contain any explosions or martial arts but the tension is good throughout. It’s not a classic thriller but it’s quite an original idea and plot and almost manages to keep the tension for the whole movie.
An unimpressive, every-day man (John Depp) is forced into a situation where he is told to kill a politician to save his kidnapped daughter (Courtney Chase).
I simply cannot express my level of disappointment. Johnny Depp has his good movies and bad movies, and so does Christopher Walken. But together, you would think this would be a surefire hit. Walken is pretty good as the menacing bad guy… but Depp, he just seems lost in the material.
The concept and plot are fine, but it seems to run on and on, and how many times can one guy bump into the governor? There are some plausibility questions, but we can ignore those. Really, it just comes down to Depp not selling the role.
